The Golden State Warriors are in search of their third straight NBA championship.
The Warriors Gaming Squad -- the organization's NBA 2K League affiliate team -- recently experienced their own share of success.
Last weekend, WGS defeated 76ers Gaming club 58-39 to win the NBA 2K League's THE TURN Tournament powered by AT&T. The prize for winning the second tournament of the 2K League season? $180,000 and a championship banner.
Not too shabby.
